A diptych series of
digitally manipulated photographs of rust and lichen, two processes initiated by water that occur slowly over decades. The processes at hand are developing on two of the artist’s favorite symbols of liminality; the grave stone and the tractor. The rust was decaying machines resting in constructions sites, machines used to build our urban landscape. The lichen was growing on stones that mark graves, sites of human decomposition.
Each image, reminiscent of religious architecture or clothing represents both growth.
These images were taken with a super macro lens, some images stand 8 feet tall.
